The Photograph as Contemporary Art – Charlotte Cotton

This book came with the course materials. It contains images from a variety of 20th century photographers with descriptions of their work, and explains their approaches and what makes their work ‘art’.

This book is something to dip into rather than to read from cover to cover. It is really useful when looking for examples of styles and it encourages the reader to research  photographers further and look for more of their work.  There are certainly several photographers I intend to investigate further as a result of skimming the book for images.
